Best Music Subscription Service for File Download?

My wife accidentally a big box of CD’s away. I’m trying to rebuild my music collection via MP3s. Since I already purchased the music I was using Yahoo Music Subscription service to download the tracks and then using fairuse4wm to remove the copy protection and convert them to MP3s so I could play them anywhere I wanted.

Yahoo is discontinuing their service and transitioning everyone to Rhapsody. I downloaded all the Rhapsody software and I believe it forced me to upgrade WMP and/or at least the IBX so fairuse4wm is impossible to use with Rhapsody. I’ve downgraded my WMP and IBX before when I accidentally accepted an update so I can do that again.

Is there another subscription service like Rhapsaody with a good selection of high-quality files that won’t force me to upgrade WMP and/or the IBX? Or has someone figured out a way to get fairuse4wm to work with Rhapsody’s current version? I can’t find a way to go back to their old version that doesn’t force an upgrade.

I know this isn’t an answer to your question, but why do you put up with this kind of madness? The whole DRM thing is ridiculous. Look at the hoops you have to jump through and the time you have to spend figuring things like this out. It will only continue as long as you continue to play their games.

Amazon doesn’t have DRM on their music downloads, and even iTunes decided to remove DRM from their music. It’s time to boycott any services that still have it.
